This is absolutely outstanding Matchlock!!! and thank you for the detail and references as well as excellent photos and illustrations. Looking at this sets a fascinating benchmark in thinking of the indescribable contrast between then and now.
I'm curious about the red paint, is there a specific reason for the choice of color. We have had discussions over the years concerning the use of red on various weapons, mostly inconclusive, but most interesting. I think you mentioned green also in some cases.
All best regards,
